Austin Ekeler rushed 16 times for 93 yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 55 yards in the Chargers' Week 2 overtime loss to the Chiefs.

Once again, Ekeler looked like one of the best tackle breakers in the NFL, gashing the Chiefs interior line for 5.8 yards per carry. More importantly, the Chargers offense looked to have some life under first-round rookie QB Justin Herbert, who passed for 311 yards in a surprise start. The quarterback change is a big win for Ekeler, as Tyrod Taylor's rushing ability limited Ekeler's chances as a receiver. Herbert can run too, but he'll check down to Ekeler more than Taylor would. Ekeler still doesn't have full control of the backfield with Joshua Kelley handling 23 carries, some of those coming in the red zone. Still, Ekeler's status as a fantasy RB1 is clearer with Herbert as the starter. Ekeler offers upside against Carolina's nonexistent rushing defense next week. Sep 20 7:55 pm (EST)
